Clutter, the free software tool-kit that makes it easier to develop compelling user-interfaces that use OpenGL / OpenGL ES, is now nearing its version 1.0 release. Emmanuele Bassi with the Intel Open-Source Technology Center has announced the release of Clutter 1.0 Release Candidate 3.
This latest release candidate of the Clutter tool-kit brings performance improvements, a fix for a potential tearing problem, and various other bug-fixes. There isn't anything too exciting in this release, as we are just a release candidate or so away from seeing Clutter 1.0.0!
The release announcement for Clutter 1.0 RC3 can be found on the GNOME mailing list
. Additional information on the Clutter Toolkit is available from their project web-site
. One of the most prominent uses of Clutter to date is within the impressive Moblin V2 user-interface
, but it's also being used within some of the GNOME Games.
